Loops, phrases, and rhythms lurch in and out of focus around each other. As sounds and moods progress, surprises and magic happen. I've never heard anything else that sounds quite like this. Tangent is an artist focusing on electronic, computer based, algorithmic, and process music, although there's still plenty of room for improvisation within this remit, particularly plunderphone improvision. Sam Stephens also releases music as Unknown Rockstar.

Seven years in the making. How are these bootlegs the worst? Where did they come from? Why inflict them upon the world?

An enigma, sounds on the edge of liminality. Is there structure here? Muffled and baffled.

Tuned into a strange subliminal dimension of hiss, woosh, thud and gibber. Improvised with a custom Pure Data feedback patch, laptop and vocalisation.

Forceful electronic music, and brute-force sampling. A solo experimental project, of usually improvised music of different forms. Tangent Precipitate journeyed through a broad range of music production techniques and genres. Generally albums had an emphasis on the capture of the raw and unpredictable creative moment. Tangent Precipitate has been retired, and further music is now produced as the Unknown Rockstar and as Tangent.

An album of keyboard/organ music. The first and third tracks are live recordings of a Hammond, and the second track is "...a live recording of keyboard through delay, played with a mind for interlocking/interweaving figures and exploring overtones - I find that listening to it intently sets me in powerful trance states."

Disturbed Bits is a series of long pieces of beautiful and intense power electronics. They investigate the ability of the juxtaposition of treated loops of different varieties to create resultant sounds that are different in character from the source material, perhaps "greater than the sum of its parts" as it were. The second set of five use pure granular superimposition to build tracks, with a different approach to most users of granular synthesis. A solo experimental project, of...

A cassette released as Tangent, before the projects split into Tangent Precipitate for solo music, and Zombie Prom Queen for the duo. With vocals by Voodoo T Savage and cover art by Reece. Originally released through stink magnetic tapes, though almost no copies were actually made (through my own slackness).
